These dates coincide with our Fingertsyle Guitar Workshop (30 June – 6 July) with renown guitarist Peppino D’Agostino. Last year we all went in a couple of times to the Festival and enjoyed some great music in the sunshine. There is no doubt that we will go in again on the Wednesday afternoon which is free time.
Not all the acts have been announced but some of the headliners are Ben Harper, Charlie Musselwhite, Beth Hart and Sinead O’Connor.
We have been going to the Cognac Blues Festival for the last 10 years and so it is always a great pleasure when it coincides with a workshop and we can take the students in to enjoy some live music . Yet another good reason to book on our Fingerstyle Workshop with Peppino D’Agostino.
A rare opportunity to spend a week with singer, songwriter and guitarist
All fans of Diane know that she is based in New York and rarely runs workshops in Europe.
Last year Diane came to Creative Vacances in France and ran a hugely successful
Write it!-sing it!- play it! workshop.
We are delighted that she has agreed to come back again this year. 15-21 May.
Anyone who knows Diane won’t be surprised that she created a great buzz last year. The students arrived with no ideas about a song and left having written,arranged, played and sung their own composition. No mean feat in just a week and all credit to Dianes indominatable energy and enthuisiasm.
This year promises to be just as exciting. So if you have dreamed of writing the lyrics for and composing a song, then this workshop is for you.
Diane will also run a session every morning giving you the confidence and skills to sing your song in tune!
Diane prefers to work with a small group and so numbers are limited to 8 so if you have always dreamed of writing your very own song and are looking for inspiration and encouragement check out our web site.
You won’t be disappointed and you can gurarantee you will go home proud of what you have achieved, while enjoying yourself on a relaxed and supportive music holiday.
Great hospitality, lovely food, enviable location, very good company and an excellent course.
I feel relaxed, refreshed and like I now have a place somewhere in the world of Blues, (gonna practice sitting out on my porch
but haven't got a hound dog !! )
.. and how did you manage to fix the weather ??
